Samsung D900 review: Slim slider extreme

Samsung D900 review: Slim slider extreme - read the full textThe slimmest slider in the world already on the market. Samsung D900 (12.9 mm thick when closed) offers almost maximum equipment. It has also been given a special final touch: a 3 megapixel camera and a superb display. Now try to imagine it all in a stylish sliding body. The price, however, is rather high.

 

Sort by:

GSMArena has lost some reliability and confidence due to the very biased review of the D900, which is a very stylish and functional hit in the mobile phone world. The production quality and software bugs of NOKIA is doing everything to undermine their long forgotten "monopoly". Why doesn't GSMArena be fair to mention the high quality touch that you get with Samsung, the "living world" and very compact design holding everything you really need right in the box and just in time?

It takes like 3-4 seconds after u press the button for it to actually finish focus and capture the pic,, by this time, most of time the thing u want to take has moved, therefore it will be blurred. really disappointing. I only have 4 pics in my phone, and to view them takes like 5 seconds to access the picture folder.. this is rediculous. It takes even longer to see pics from my memory card. But music plays instantly from memory card..

bought this phone last thursday and i must say this phone is un-be-live-able! slim, light weight, feels good in hand, stylish, gorgeous screen and camera resolution, superior sound quality, everything is so awesome now my gf also bought one in wine red. i also have no problem at all using my 1G sandisk micro SD card. i truly think my gf and i have finally found a phone that we can use for a long time! cheers everyone.

Well yes,not 2 bad 4 a ph without OS like Nokia.BUT,batt life really sucks.Why give D900 energysapping,hitec thingz like 3G,bluetooth,music+video,high qual screen,MMS,etc.if it doesnt have the battlife 2 properly drive these thingz???? Is battlife not the most important thing in a ph?? The batt is just 2 thin 2 have good+strong energy,4sure!!!& further,WEAK BATT = WEAK SIGNIL,not so??If u really mean 2 use all tese functions,RECHARGE EVERY DAY/NIGHT,or get y/self a (smart)ph with decent battlife..

Hi
I have just bought a Samsung D900 after using a D500 for nearly 18 months. I can't describe how I disappointed I am!I have just had the phone for 2 days and after charging it fully and after one phone call of 5-10 minuted duration the battery is dead and the phone is refusing to switch on.I am struck at work with out a charger for rest of the week end. The battery level was full this morning and it is gone now.I would like to know if anyone has had similar experience and how I should sort it out.Is there is warranty for the battery?

As I just recently brought this phone, I have something that I want to transfer into the phone but there isnt much memory.
So I decided to buy 1Gb of memory card for this phone.
Along the way deciding on which brand to buy, I came across a user saying that only Sandisk micro SD card with 1Gb is about to use in D900.
As for kingstone one is unable.
So I would like to know the true before purchasing 1.
Do drop me a e-mail to clear my misunderstanding.

There is a way to set ringtones... you just have to go to "Menu"... then "Music"... then choose where you want the music from... then pick the song and select "Options"... then "Set as"... then "Ringtone" or "Caller Ringtone" and select the person if you want to personalise each person.

Had the phone for 2 wks and it has been a perfect 2 wks! nothing can go wrong with this phone. Another useful feature of "Living World" is the intensity of the clouds which shows how strong/weak the signal to the phone is. The stronger the signal, the clearer the sky. A weak signal will produce a very couldy sky.

And I also agree that the review of the Samsung D900 is VERY biased.

samsung phones are very powerful but fun to have and because of these, samsung phones are the envy of the gsm arena reviewers, nokia users and SE users.

this is an amazing piece of technology. its just a great handset. Sturdy, reliable, sleek, light and feels expensive despite the fact its made of plastic. wonderful features such as easy and logical menu layout. I love the rich coloured LCD display. I'm not bothered about how many pixels it has because it's only a phone. To be honest i would'nt even care if it had no camera. maybe it would be a bit thinner

I own this phone since almost 2 months now. And it has been fantastic so far. Just the dream phone to have.

I dont understand why Gsmarena has always liked Nokia's or SE's and not Samsung's. Gsmarena has forgot ( or delibrately ) to mention about the Great Feature this beauty has that is called " Living World Feature " The wallpaper changes according to the Time and the Place. ( country ) Plus it shows you by the graphics if you have missed a call or message. I mean no other Phone has this Feature and you just cant forget to mention about this Feature in your review.

Plus there are quite a few features like SOS Messages, how volume key can be used as a reject for any call and send the TEXT directly, inbuilt Answering Machine, Conversation Recorder ( depends on the Firmware ), etc. been forgotten....!!! I mean I dont understand howcome these Features havnt been mentioned.

And no. of disadvantages given to this phone is amazing...I wonder howcome Nokia's or SE's dont get huge no. of disadvantages... even if they actually do have some of them.

I am not satisfied with this review of gsmarena.

I have yet to buy this phone, but have fallen for it. The price is rather high, so am having second thoughts. Will someone please tell me if anyone has had any problems with the sliding mechanism?
It is a BEAUTIFUL phone, and my friends are discouraging me from buying it as it does not have 3G and because Nokia phones sound quality is better, but I am still undecided. Will someone please tell me about the sliding mechanism and the sound clarity.
thanks
